  • A computed tomogram was performed, revealing a subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm that compressed the brachial plexus ( Figs. 1 A to 1 D). A few days later, an endovascular covered self-expanding stent was successfully placed, excluding the pseudoaneurysm ( Figs. 1 E to 1 H). Chest pain disappeared, and the patient was discharged uneventfully. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm is a well-described complication as an inadvertent arterial puncture following central venous catheterization ( 2 ). (onlinejacc.org)
  • There are a few reported cases of subclavian artery dissection complicating mammary artery graft catheterization performed via the transfemoral approach ( 3 ), but to our knowledge, this is the first description of a subclavian pseudoaneurysm complicating a transradial artery cardiac catheterization.

  • Technical difficulties are because of loops and tortuosity of the radial and the subclavian artery, anatomical variations in radial artery, and radial spasm. (wikipedia.org)
